Old world techniques
& new world technology
Cellarest Beer Project is a 4 BBL. small batch, regionally influenced brewery that showcases how unique beer can be to its environment. Utilizing three different types of wood for fermentation, lagering, and aging we will channel the life of the wood into our beer to bridge the gap between old-world techniques and new world technology.
Keepin' it wild
Through bioprospecting we have captured wild yeast and bacteria from the West Asheville neighborhood which will be used to ferment our wild beer. Working alongside local maltsters to brew with regionally grown and malted grains we add to the terroir of our products. Using seasonal whole unpasteurized fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs we will keep the complexity and tradition of farmhouse brewing alive while keeping our products as local as possible.
True to our roots
We choose to pour our beer out of European style serving tanks which utilize a liner and compressed air instead of CO2 for dispensing. This saves on labor, water, chemicals, and further deepens the farmhouse ideology while providing the freshest beer and allowing us to pour each beer at its proper temperature.
All our beer (unless otherwise noted) is gluten-reduced below 20 ppm of gluten, which is the international threshold for beer to be considered “gluten-free”.
